Greetings, everyone.

I’ve just joined the forum, after lurking here every now and then since about twelve years ago (when I first started playing HOMM 3). So why join now? I’ve hit upon an idea of how it might be possible to breathe new life into the HOMM series, and I want to run it passed the veteran gamers here to see whether it is viable and how it might be improved.

I will start a number of threads to discuss the implications of and potential mechanics for my proposed design idea. I hope to see you there!

That's quite a write up. Welcome, beastmaster :)

I always found that faction a bit dull, tbh. "Lets just train a bunch of weird critters and set them at the enemy", sort of thing. Now, if they were DEAD critters...

I think the main reason I play fortress is because of these critters. They are mostly reptilian creatures and I kinda like em. :)

Now the Beastmasters themselves are an awesome class. High chances to get Logistics, Earth Magic, Tactics, Ballistics. :) The heroes themselves are good as well, you know, Bron, Tazar and pretty much all the others.

Welcome as well, Korbec.

Mighty Gorgons were so cool. :hoo: Sad that every time they introduce a creature I like, they take it away the next game. :cry: The Rakshasa Mufasa was one, for instance.

Hi there!

Postby GDPanda » Dec 16 2011, 20:48

Just wanted to say how awesome it is find this site (not like the official HOMM publisher page makes that easy)! I'm Relatively new player to the series, got interested in revisiting the old IP recently from watching a few LP's of III on good ol' youtube.

I feel like a fool for missing out on the classics back in the day, but when you're 12 Doom seems way cooler than riding around on a unicorn :P So I missed out on the gems that were II & III. I have however been slowly playing through V and really enjoy it. I just can't bring myself to go back to the old titles (yea, graphics snob, guilty as charged). I would have mopped up the three HOMM 5 games but my game likes to lock / minimize habitually, despite my less than 2 year old and good for its time gaming rig :mad:

I'm really excited about playing VI, but from the stuff I have read, I think I will hold off while those nasty bugs get squished. Release has reminded me a lot of when Paradox Interactive releases a new "game" (they really should just call them $40 betas lol).

So I'm almost 100%, immovably positive that none of you will remember me, but for what it's worth: greetings once again, everyone! SventheCrusader here, back after a ludicrous three-year disappearance, with newly revived interest in M&M and newly revived interest in doing things.

Hopefully I'll stick around more properly this time. :P

Okay, i hoped a bit there would be no such thread, but it is here, so i think i have to do this.

first of all, sorry for my bad english, i'm from germany and almost everything i can write/say/read/understand in english i teached myself from discworld novels or music from the dubliners, the pogues, flogging molly and similar ones. so i hope you can excuse some bad spelling and other mistakes i might (and will) make.

okay, now the real thing...
i'm 23, male from a small town near hamburg, and at the moment on the hamburg university, in hope to become a teacher for chemestry and physics one day, when i'm finished there.

in my spare time i play sotfair, do some firejuggling (preferable with poi and sometimes doublestaff) and i'm trying to learn how to sit on a horse, when it moves. some might call it "riding", i'm ok with "not falling down to soon".
oh, and of course, sometimes i like a good pc game.

well, that's why i'm here, i played heroes V ToE a while, and then the idea for a map came to my mind.
"hm, it's a strategygame, can't be much harder then making maps for age of empires and similar."
and then came the scripts, and i fall from my chair.

so, to be true:
mostly i am here because i hope you can help me with mapediting, and, more then all, the scripting.
so... this might be my first post, but the second in the mapping forum will follow in just a few minutes ;)

i hope you can halp me, and with a bit of luck, i might be able to contribute a new, maybe good map to the map section in a while.
